Sean Van Koughnett on basketball and devotion to one's craft. Growing up, Sean was probably the best basketball player that I knew in Kitchener, ON, Canada. He was 5 years older and I would be lying if I said I didn't look up to him a bit. He played for the Canadian National Junior Team. He was the last guy to be cut from the National Men's Team for the Sydney Olympics. Years later, I got to know Sean a bit after running a basketball drop-in he would play us vs. Sean. He was that good!
